Our expert says:
You will have to consult your doctor to determine if your thyroid function is well controlled. Hypothyroidism can cause a sugar craving, especially due to the fact that the refined sugars enter the blood quickly and gives a sudden burst of energy. I think that you are in a negative cycle of eating refined sugars to get energy, which is short lived and then your body craves more sugar. Try replacing the refined sugars with healthful alternative sweeteners like xylitol, stevia and agave nectar. Avoid artificial sweetners, like sorbitol, aspartame and saccharin, as it contains artificial ingredients that can cause harm to your body.
